About Joy Smith

Love to travel and be in the great outdoors. Bachelors degree in Chemistry, but work in film tv production. Grew up in northern California and came to southern California for school at UCIrvine.

Joy Smith purchased this house in 2014

Why Joy Smith chose La Mirada

This property has been in my family for 20 years. I have lived at the house many times, college and after. My God Mother and aunt left the house to me after her passing. We miss Judge Judi very much (she was an administrative judge for the state of California). We have absolutely fallen in love with the house and neighborhood especially the park, been living there for almost 2 years now and do not miss Hollywood. The living room is very relaxing with a healing energy with 3 beautiful arches in the architecture and lots of open space with a view of a private sparkling pool. The kitchen is outstanding with granite counter tops, high end over and stove top with the water feature over the range, two sinks, lots of space for food, great cookware, cutlery, etc. The bathrooms have all been upgraded to tile and granite and are very relaxing. Big tub for baths with detachable shower head and the bonus wall shower heads that come out like jets. The master bathroom shower takes me to Tuscany and if you leave one of the bathroom doors open, you can shower while enjoying a view of the pool. The bedrooms all have ceiling fans, two of the fans are remote controlled. Three of the 4 bedrooms have AC units and the living room AC unit cools the 4th bedroom. The lighting is state of the art with many dimmers. Sleep well at night in a very serene, safe, quiet neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

The house is in one of the best neighborhoods of southern California. It's perfectly situated between Orange County and LA, but once you are home, there is everything you could want. The park is outstanding, getting up every morning and walking to open space, tall trees, rolling hills, geese, ducks, ponds, children playing, peaceful joy fills my soul. Also there is golf, and for kids a water slide park. I enjoy doing track workouts at the University. Also, you can walk to a movie theater and the La Mirada Performing Arts Center to see live theater. Once in La Mirada, you don't feel the hussle and bustle of traffic of the Los Angeles area. It's peace and quiet all night long in a safe neighborhood. La Mirada is in the top 100 best livable cities in the country.

Perfect spot for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Joy was great to work with! She was very accommodating and quick to respond. The house was amazing! Very clean and well maintained. There was more than enough space for 8 adults and 1 child. It even came with toys!! The pool was great and loaded with lots of pool toys. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you would need to cook a full meal. The bbq was easy to use and large enough to cook many burgers and dogs :) The location was convenient! Close to great restaurants a grocery store and parks. We would highly recommend this house!!!! Thank you Joy!!

Great stay at La Mirada

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great stay at La Mirada. Joy was very helpful even before we arrived. She answered all of our questions and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we would need for our stay. She accommodated an early check in and met us at the house to walk through everything. The pool was great with life jackets and pool toys available for the kids. This was a very family oriented and kid friendly house which was perfect for us. The neighbourhood was very nice with a lovely park and a playground we walked to and there was a golf course close by. The nearby shopping centre was very convenient to grab groceries and a coffee at Starbucks. Joy also gave us great suggestions for sights and beach drives. We would stay here again!

The house is a beautiful rancho style with an amazing garden featuring lovely roses and other domestic blooming plants. The pool is immaculate and well kept. There are several outside sitting areas to enjoy various times of day. The interior of the house is a mixture of modern and classic with room for 10 people comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked and layed out in a way that makes meal preperation easy and comvenient.

Great little home away from home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I took our 5 kids on spring break vacation . We had a great time. Pretty central to everything (we did Disneyland & Universal. Enough room for all 7 of us and the kids had fun in the pool. Had everything we needed. And Joy & Jeff were responsive, helpful and friendly.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We took our kids and grand kids with us, so there were 7 of us. We all really enjoyed the outdoors where we barbecued in the evening, and the pool, which is really nice and deep. Everything that the kids needed for swimming, was provided.

The kitchen is adequate and is well equipped, with everything one would need for prepping food, and cooking. The house, overall is spacious, everybody had their own space, with TV's in every room and wifi. The master opened towards the pool and the little patio was enclosed (and so was the one outside the living room), providing a nice safety feature for small kids.

The kids had hoppers for Disneyland, and the location is in near proximity to the parks. You can hear the fireworks, at night. There is also a beautiful park, not far from the house, for long walks, and it also has exercise equipment. A gym outdoors!

I wish it were a bit more updated, but some of the old features throughout the house were charming.

All in all, a great experience!

Beautiful park next to the Golf Course, walk one block along golf course and you are in a 100+ acre park (one of the few, large parks in all of Los Angeles). Multiple play grounds, tennis, frisbee golf, hand ball, baseball, walking, fishing, pond, large trees, rolling hills. Next door to the park is a WATER SLIDE PARK called SPLASH open in the summer, walk to your own water slide adventure with river float included. Lap pool open year round. Cross the street at the park and you're at Biola University with an open to the public state of the art Track for walks, runs, sprinting. Use the tunnel under La Mirada blvd to go between park and University and there is a free open climbing wall with the hand pieces attached to the wall. End up at a mile long creek park that meanders between a nice neighborhood with small running water creek.
